Awrah (عورة) is a visual exploration of the politics of being Muslim in a Western society. It dissects the multifaceted experiences of young Muslim women through the lens of fashion, with the intention of challenging stereotypes by uncovering the covered.

The project was produced and edited in 2017 by students Hayley Rabat, Abi Steadman and Lamisa Khan as a part of their Visual International Relations module at the London School of Economics.  Made in just over three weeks, the film interviews young women navigating their identities as Muslims after Brexit and Trump’s Muslim Ban.
